Description Scott Sibert 2003-04-08 15:21:50 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
httpd.conf has parameters for Apache 1.3 version of mod_proxy (ie. CacheRoot)
which is very different from Apache 2.0 version of mod_proxy; caching should use
mod_cache for 2.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

Actual Results:  starting the web server after uncommenting the parameters returns:

Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 1020 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
Invalid command 'CacheRoot', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not
included in the server configuration

Expected Results:  should've started

Additional info:

it looks like nobody tested this

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2003-04-09 15:24:20 UTC
The caching modules aren't very stable in Apache 2.0.40 so weren't included; I'd
recommend using Squid instead.  They'll be included once we upgrade to a more
recent 2.0 release.

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2003-05-19 09:19:10 UTC
The cache modules are now included in httpd-2.0.45-5, in Raw Hide.
